Limiting Google Research to multiple web-sites using the OR and site: operators

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/01/22

I knew Google Search had a site: operator and I thought you could or them together using something like this:

reboot site:superuser.com or site:android.stackexchange.com

To my surprise that returned zero results as in empty result list.

Indeed: the OR needs to be in uppercase to work:

you can use the OR operator to add another site to your query:

reboot site:superuser.com OR site:android.stackexchange.com

Google Chrome URL chrome://devices/ -> your registered Google Cloud devices like printers

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/01/18

Just learned a new Google Chrome URL chrome://devices/ which lists your Google Cloud devices like printers.

Though in the case of OKI printers, you have to enter your printers at the printer which the Menu button is a painful exercise. [WayBackoki-c332dn-control-panel_maxwidth.jpg (525×550).

You can also view the device list in https://www.google.com/cloudprint#printers

For some OKI printers (including the MC342 series) you need to update the firmware. For a Mac, you need the below firmware update tool that automagically:

  1. detects the printers
  2. finds the firmware on the internet
  3. updates the printer

Tool: [WayBackFWUP_020000_10.7.dmg via [WayBackFirmware Update | OKI Global

Using both Google Fi and Google Voice means you need to use two Google accounts on the same phone

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/11/13

A while ago at [WayBack] The only bad thing about getting Google Fi is giving up Google Voice — Mike Elgan wrote

You can use Google Voice or you can use Google Fi, but you can’t use both. I just bought a Google Pixel 3 in order to move off AT&T and onto Google Fi fulltime. (We used to use Google Fi using my wife’s account, but only as a WiFi hotspot while traveling abroad.) It’s kind of a bummer, b

But the first comment has a solution that works, if you use two Google accounts that is:

I have Fi and use Google Voice on the same phone. I have to sign in to Voice with a separate Google account so there are some compromises but it works for how I use it.
